Grow your own Green career in Dorset

Dorset LEP has researched and published Insights into the Dorset Labour Market and Skills for quarter 3 this year.

It’s a fascinating report of interest to both clients and to candidates, it never hurts to have knowledge and understanding of the local recruitment market no matter which side of the fence you are on.

In particular interest to candidates is the piece in the report about green jobs and how that manifests in our locality - here's a short snippet to whet your appetite...

"The Government unveiled its landmark Net Zero Strategy: Build Back Greener setting out how the UK will secure 440,000 well-paid jobs and unlock £90 billion in investment in 2030 on its path to ending its contribution to climate change by 2050.

The strategy outlines the need for tens of thousands of engineers to build and maintain new offshore wind farms, construct nuclear power stations, and manufacture electric vehicles; skilled builders and trades people to retrofit homes and buildings across the country; and conservation and biodiversity professionals to deliver nature-based solutions to climate change. It also ascertains that alongside a broader shift to digitisation and automation, the transition to net zero would be one of the dominant labour market trends in the next 30 years with one in five jobs likely to be affected by the transition to a green economy."

To see how that looks for Dorset, take a look at the full report here.
